(I hope it's the right place here to put this question. Also I couldn't find a similar question)
I listen to c64-sids very often. But I need some new food . While there are some "my-favourite-sids"-lists out there, they often only contain old heroes like galway/hubbard/hülsbeck and the like. Almost 10 years ago there was a "Best of Various"-List ( see http://dhp.com/~shark/BOV/ ) with many good tunes.
But time has passed and I need something new. I'd like to hear some suggestions (composers or tunes) from you. Only condition: The composer has to have released at least 5 tunes in the last 10 years.
My favourites in this category are:
- DRAX: easy target, I know. Has been active from the beginning up to now. My favourite recent releases are: "Break Up", "Winter Bird" and "Star Flake"
- Fanta: "Bombs over Dresden", "Soapbox Opera"
- Glen Rune Gallefoss: This man is a genius! "Evil within me" or "Huffa Meg" are sick and brilliant at the same time. Some not-so-new-but-still-awesome releases are "Hickup" or "Scimitars" or the inventive "GRG in Cyberspace". I promise: One day I'll do a remix of one of his tunes!
- Owen Crowley / CRD / Conrad: I admire the dark/cool mood in some of his tunes: "City Noises", "Croaker", "A load of Tap"
- Stellan Anderson / Dane: "Chronicles", "Arctic Circles", "Edge of Disgrace" are unbeatable. I consider "Eskimonika" as a perfect candidate for a Melodic-Death-Metal-Remix... someday I'll do it..
- Sascha Zeidler/Linus: "8580 People": music in 9/8-time! "Casting Vertigo upon the land": 26seconds pure madness
- Martin Evald (Radiantx): "Reactor Stage One" or "Opal"
- Soren Lund (Jeff): "6581 Doped Cows" or "Ode to c64"
